God's Judgment Hand

  God has warned us throughout His Word what He will do when His wrath comes upon the earth. The prophet Isaiah spoke of the day in which we live:

    “And they shall go into the holes of the rocks, and into the caves of the earth, for fear of the Lord, and for the glory of His majesty, when He ariseth to shake terribly the earth.”  Isaiah 2:19

    God has arisen to terribly shake the earth, and these shakings are getting continuously closer together. The earthquake that hit Haiti caused much destruction because of the poor construction of the buildings. The earthquake in Chile, although greater in magnitude than the one in Haiti, did less damage because of better constructed buildings. In Chile, we saw graphic pictures on the news media, with people running for higher ground because they feared the great swells of water crashing the shore lines from the earthquake induced tsunami. This brings to mind the following Scripture:

    “Therefore I will shake the heavens, and the earth shall remove out of her place, in the wrath of the Lord of hosts, and in the day of His fierce anger.”  Isaiah 13:13

    When the earthquake hit Chile, the earth was moved on its axis. The same thing happened when the earthquake hit Thailand and Malaysia which caused the tsunami in December of 2008 which killed thousands of people.  The earth again was moved on its axis in this tragic event also. We may ask, “Did the people take heed to these disasters?”  I think not.  Soon it was every day living, just as before.  The Psalmist declares:

    “They know not, neither will they understand; they walk on in darkness: all the foundations of the earth are out of course.”  Psalm 82:5    

    Everyone has been wondering about this strange winter. Every state in the union has seen snow except Hawaii. The weather here in Northern Maine has been unseasonably warm with little snow. Yet other areas of the nation who never get much snow accumulation, have been covered with record snow falls. Could all this unusual weather be caused by the foundations (the axis) of the earth being out of course?

    Then came the earthquake in Taiwan, China. Four days later a major earthquake hit Turkey. Of course, these did not do great damage like the two in Haiti and Chile, because they occurred in remote areas. We hear of more aftershocks in the already devastated areas of Haiti and Chile, which are doing further structural damage. But what about the United States? We hear daily of earthquakes in California, in Reno, Nevada, and continuous seismic activity in the Yellowstone Nations Park area. Just recently there have been earthquakes south of Chicago, Missouri, and Ohio. Can you imagine what the people in the United States would do if there was a large earthquake in major metropolitan areas? How much shaking does God have to do to this old earth before people will wake up and cry out for His protection?  So far God has shown great mercy and patience toward this nation. But with the anti-christ movement growing, how long will this nation remain free of the devastation being recorded in other areas of the world? How long is it going to be before God brings His judgment upon this nation as well? Now the experts are telling us there are fault lines in the middle of this nation which they predict are going to divide this nation into three parts.  This is exactly what Jesus revealed to John on the Isle pf Patmos:

    “And there were voices, and thunders, and lightnings; and there was a great earthquake, such as was not since men were upon the earth, so mighty an earthquake, and so great. And the great city was divided into three parts, and the cities of the nations fell: and great Babylon came in remembrance before God, to give unto her the cup of the wine of the fierceness of His wrath.”  Revelation 16:18-19

    When the great earthquakes hit this nation, it will drive the people to their knees. But it will be too late for all those thousands who will be killed, and the thousands who will lose their homes.  This will happen suddenly, without warning.  When disaster hit Haiti and Chile, the whole world responded to help. How many do you think will be here to help those in this nation? The actions of our politicians have made the United States one of the most hated nations on the face of the earth. But God’s judgment is not only on the United States, it is on the whole earth. The prophet Isaiah proclaimed:

    “Thou shalt be visited of the Lord of hosts with thunder, and with earthquake, and great noise, with storm and tempest, and the flame of devouring fire.”  Isaiah 29:6

    This is exactly what is going on around the whole earth. This was prophesied seven hundred years before Jesus was born. God knew the end from the beginning. He has told us many times and many ways about His judgment. The prophet Haggai prophesied:

    “For thus saith the lord of hosts; Yet once, it is a little while, and I will shake the heavens, and the earth, and the sea, and the dry land;” Haggai 2:6

    When the earthquakes happen in the seas (the oceans), this will cause great tsunamis. When we look at the devastation to the land and the buildings in Haiti and Chile, we say how terrible!  But again, I ask you, “What if these great devastations from earthquakes come to the United States?”  In our day, there have been more killed in earthquakes than in any other time in history.  So far this year, the death toll has risen to two hundred and twenty thousand - - - and this is only March. Tighten your seat belts America, for the nine months which lie ahead.
